Walker on the Green: Artist-Designed Mini Golf

Tee up in the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden and let the games begin! Chickens, stars, a hungry snake, a gumball machine, and other novelties await you on the Walker’s new mini-golf course. Players will also encounter some favorites from last year’s course, including a tilting maze game, a gopher hole vortex, and foosball with garden gnomes.

Don’t let the choice between a round of putt-putt and a wander through air-conditioned contemporary art museum drive a wedge between you and your loved ones: every ticket includes free gallery admission (up to $14 value) for each golfer.


  • Open daily, beginning May 22: Thursday–Saturday, 10 am–10 pm; Sunday–Wednesday, 10 am–8 pm.

  • Early Bird Discount: $2 off every ticket, Monday–Thursday, 10 am–1 pm.
